Lanzarote Eco Cottage at Tao
Although lanzarote is known as a tourist resort destination, what is not generally realised is the extent of natural beauty in the many Biosphere Reserves with the majority of the island left in its original pristine condition. The hot water is solar heated and all electrics are powered by the sun, making this eco friendly cottage totally self sufficient.The panorama from this painstakingly restored Canarian finca cottage is astounding in that there is a totally unrestricted view of natural park land, extending to a huge beach, the Chinijo archipelago and overseen by the massive headland of the Famara cliffs. Notice the sign reminding that this is a special area for Lanzarote birdlife! Our Famara Beach Apartment is close to the beach with a lovely vista from the lounge.
Price for per day for 2 people €80
Price for each person extra is €15 per day.

The Jewel Of The Sands is set in a peaceful, natural reserve, the nearest neighbours are over 500 yards away, from the cottage, the views are stunning, looking over the sand plans, with the Famara cliffs and beach in the distance and on to the islands of La Graciosa, Montaña Clara and Alegranza. Its ideal location means you can just walk from the cottage for miles without crossing a made up road, either choosing to walk the sandy tracks or simple adventure over the virgin landscape.
The bird life in this protected, unspoilt and hidden area is amazing, its possible to spot birds like the Hoopies, Kestrels, Grey Shrike, Stone Curlew, Cattle Egrets, Herons and even the Houbora Bustard amongst many others.
The place is ideal also for cycling, running, writing, art, meditation, yoga and is also a short drive to the Famara beach area, so brilliant for surfing, body boarding and kite surfing, or if you just want to escape and do nothing, it’s the ideal home which will enable you do just that, embracing you to feel relaxed and at home.
